Atheism increasing 3 times faster than other beliefs

A youtube clip that combines various different statistics. Most morally uplifting for us skeptics!

Nice little statistical summary, there.

I like that the atheist who created it gave references, too.

Reality is that which is left, after you stop believing.

Yeah. One of the links he posted didn't work - maybe the site was removed, or something. I have added the UK home office prison stats to my collection though lol!

Thanks for the vid Adam.

Now if we could just get the 'right' people to watch it...

Great Vid Adam, I would argue however that correlation and causation are not necessarily the same thing, as was once point out by a graph showing that the number of pirates decreasing correlated with an increase in global temperature:

But its still worth pointing out these stats.

That graph has been one of my faves for a while now. You're right, we cannot assume 100% the causality but when. for instance, the prison discrepancies occur in countries all around the world, you have to wonder. At the least, it goes to show that there is no reason whatsoever for theists to accuse non-believers of amorality

When has that stopped the Liars For Jesus crowd?

More to the point, when was actual reality ever a factor in what they do?

*sigh*
